is a multi-media artist who has taught elementary school art for thirty years. She was recently named the 2013 Maine Art Education Association’s “Elementary Art Educator of the Year.” Grigsby is a believer that inside everyone is either the ability to create or appreciate art. Painting and fabric have been common threads in her work. Her fabric pieces are done by a process that disperses dye on paper, which is then cut into collages and printed using a dry mount press on polyester fabric. Sometimes she brings her experience as a quilter into these pieces by adding stitching and embellishment. Cathy is also a pastel artist who loves to paint outdoors. She tries to capture the reverence and awe she feels about the beauty that surrounds her in Maine.

Since moving to the United States, she has been concentrating on painting with watercolor media, with a focus of on spiritual themes and nature. “I like the brilliant colors and transparency of watercolor media which allow me to expand my imagination about subjects more freely. I would like to share these visions with people who also appreciate the visual expression of natural and spiritual art.” Her work can be viewed at www.setsukopaintings.com.
